His music shares the spirit of some of that humour, as well; it bubbles and self-effaces with moments of non-seriousness that disguise just how much consideration goes into it. Flamagra is its apotheosis. Featuring collaborations as dense as the album’s arrangements, drive-bys from fellow avant-gardeners like David Lynch, Toro y Moi, George Clinton, Anderson .Paak and old pal Thundercat showcase just how influential FlyLo has become.
Six albums in, Flying Lotus once again builds a sprawling metropolis of sound, fleshed out enough you could live in it.
Flamagra is out May 24 via Warp/Inertia.
